Fish on Friday
Me and Mrs. Holcomb, the really lovely neighbor lady at the lake who took me fishing in Texas very briefly at some point in the 70's, and fresh-caught dinner for 8. Not sure which lake, whatever lake it is/was where my aunt & uncle had a "cabin" (really a trailer home but made for a fine lakeside vacation retreat). Uncle had a motorboat and fancy fishing gear but I never caught so many fish in my life as I did when Mrs. Holcomb decided to take me under her wing during one vacation up there. She fixed me up with a plain bamboo pole with a bobber and we would seine for minnows for bait and then we would go out in her little aluminum skiff and catch largemouth bass until we had enough for dinner for all.
Good memories from my aunt & uncle's old home in TX, my mom sent a lovely set of photos along after they went down for my uncle's funeral. Again, so glad we got in that good visit in December. Busy week here but just can't resist sharing this one.
